Introducing Joel William

And now....Introducing Joel William!!!




Mommy talked to Catherine, the Purrageous Pirate's mommy tonight and gave her the scoop to announce to the blogosphere. We're pretty beat here but everything went great and the beans and #2 aka Joel are home. I can NOT believe how much noise can come out of something that small.

He was born Friday, July 10, 2009 at
8:36AM. He weighed 7lbs 11.7oz and was 20 1/4" long.

We would have sent photos way earlier, but the wireless at the hospital was terrible and mommy and daddy kept getting booted off. It isn't smart to frustrate a new mommy either...

These are photos from the first day. We have lots more from Saturday and today,
but haven't uploaded them yet. They offered mommy the chance to come home a day
early so getting Joel home this afternoon took all our time.

Thank you all for your good thoughts and wishes. We'll be thanking you personally in the next couple weeks, but for now will take a few days off to get in a routine (and for me to train...)

Love, Mommy Amy, Daddy Greg, Big Brother Hendrix and Little Baby Joel
